+1

 

There would be a big sale in taobao this coming 12.12. Actually this is their version of BF sale. They have 2 big sales every year, the first is 11.11 and the second is the upcoming 12.12.

Got that Blue R35 KZ in today. Another $6 in ear that kills for the price. It basically seems to emulate the old CX-300B II in sound and shape... deep diving bass, neutral mids, slight Sennheiser treble peak, sensitive, slightly more sibilant than desired... $60 type sound, for $6.  Not bad at all, but missing the clarity of higher end sets.

I don't remember the sound of the 300, so I'm taking a guess on it. Funny thing is, these sound better and cost less than the CX-300 fakes that used to flood ebay. 

Do you have the link to blue R35 KZ ...cant seem to find it ... Thanks a lot

:sigh: This taobao agent stuff has been somewhat of a hassle for me. Word to the wise: get a paypal debit card and avoid any future hassles. Anyway, hopefully, I'll be buying moxpad, tiinlab, and havi on monday or tuesday.

And, almost immediately, I take this back. :sigh: Anyway, I will still be making the purchases this upcoming week. And, thanks for all the help, bhazard!

If you want to use Paypal, you can use ugomark.com. Same type of service. I've preferred Mistertao lately because the rates seem to be cheaper for me, and they take pics before shipping. Ugomark usually responds better too.

A new model RX was just released by them too.. translation says the wire is "wheat version", but I don't think it is actually made of wheat :)

Got the Somic ST-80 in. These took over a month, probably were held up by China Post. Can be had for $21.

 

Great with bass, but too veiled with mids and highs. I thought they were really great at first, but once I A/B'ed with my HE-500, the veil was very noticeable. Definitely a DJ headphone, and labeled as such. I actually enjoy the bass on these more than my HE-500.

 

Definitely better than most $20 headphones you'll find, but not a giant killer. These remind me of the Takstar HD5500 in signature and bass. The HD5500 sounds a bit better, but it is also over twice the price.

Bhazard,

 

What do you consider to be the best headphone and IEM for under $100?

Way too many to list. You can only go by impressions from people and the type of sound signature you like. I change favorites on a weekly basis it seems. I also have unique tastes. For instance, everyone raves about the Wooduo 2 and how great it is for bass, which would be great for a basshead like me, but I think the bass is sloppy and the whole sound sig is a mess.

 

KZ has been consistently awesome in the value department for me. The Moxpad does a lot well. The Moe, Ostry, and Tiinlab T114 are awesome in their own ways.

 

I haven't found an uber headphone or IEM, and I don't think it exists. Even my HE-500 doesn't satisfy 100% of the time. There is always some headphone or IEM that sounds better with certain music, a certain tube, a certain amp, a certain source... it's actually tiring to try to compare it all. That's why I'm cutting back a bit and just enjoying what I have. None of them have even hit a 100 hr "burn-in" mark, so the sound may even change.

Just arrived.
I love TE800i it is balance. Others is good in bass, for me the bass decay is too long. The earbud is also good. All of them has good build quality

I hated the ES600 with a passion.  The driver flex drove me nuts.  I clipped off the earpieces and kept the wiring and the accessory pack.

Topping and HLLY are Chinese manufacturers of T-amps and DACs.
